I'd say that DOSFS_ToDosFCBFormat should fail when the file contains
upper-case chars on a case-sensitive file system. This will probably
make it impossible to access some files in certain cases though. I'm
afraid it's not possible to support case-sensitive file systems 100%
right given that Windows apps don't preserve case correctly.
